Cavaliers Join Growing List of Companies Offering Support to Employees Requiring Abortion Services
Many organizations intend to help employees seeking reproductive healthcare
The Cleveland Cavaliers says it will cover its employees’ out-of-state travel costs for reproductive health care.
The organization made the announcement Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Ohio’s heartbeat bill became a law last week.
According to their statement, “The Cleveland Cavaliers, Monsters, Charge, Cavs Legion, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and Rock Entertainment Group stand for equality, and believe having full access to reproductive health care is a fundamental freedom of choice all women should have. Prioritizing the well-being of our team members (employees) means to ensure they have the ability to make personal decisions about their health and future. We will now cover costs to travel outside Ohio for reproductive healthcare to the fullest extent permitted by state law."
